. and the next picture is of after tamerlan went to the police. he charged into the police with his guns, and tamerlan was taken down, and you see him in the distance being taken down. now that's not the right picture. that's the picture. circle there is tamerlan on the ground, and the car that is driving towards him, that is dzhokhar driving towards the police and his brother. this is after, of course, tamerlan has been taken down. and then the third picture, that's the one that you showed before, if you can put it back is the car in which they had all their bombs. and this is when the bomb squad sends a robot bomb detector over -- there it is -- to check and inspect the car for explosives. really just remarkable photographs. we would never have images of the gunfire if it weren't for andrew kissenberg. he is seeking people to donate to the one fund in exchange for showing these -- letting us have the license for these pictures. anderson? >> so, jay, what he is saying is he saw the vehicle allegedly driven by dzhokhar literally drive through the road black, basically just smash its way

brother, tamerlan, killed in a gun battle early friday morning while wearing explosives strapped to his chest, may have instigated the plot and persuaded dzhokhar to join him, but why? the brothers originally from chechnya, were raised in the u.s., living in the same house, and seemed to fit in. both were athletic. dzhokhar, a wrestler, and tamerlan, a boxer. who hoped to be on the u.s. olympic team. but in recent years, tamerlan had changed and became radicalized, according to his uncle, who says he then spoke to a family friend. >> he said there is someone who brainwashed him, some newly convert to islam. >> reporter: in 2011, russian intelligence, concerned about the threat of chech knowian terrorism asked the fbi to investigate tamerlan, based on information that he was a follower of radical islam and that he had changed drastically since 2010, according to an fbi statement. the fbi says a checked databases, interviewed tamerlan and family members, but quote did not find any terrorism activity, domestic or foreign. the fbi says it asked the russians for more, but never got answers.

, and also what you would expect him to say, the older brother, tamerlan, was the driving force behind these terrorist attacks. based on what the investigators are getting from dzhokhar, this government sore tells me that the brothers, according to dzhokhar, seem to be self-radicalized, self-starters. they were motivated by the driving train of thought was jihadist thought. and all the governments -- i'm sorry all the political or religious implications that entails the idea being, of course, that they thought they construed islam to be under attack and needed to fight back. that's what they're saying based on initial interviews, preliminary interviews with dzhokhar. >> where he's speaking, communicating by writing, by hand signals, nodding? >> not speaking. communicating through nodding, through writing and other ways of nonverbal. he has that bullet wound to his throat. he can't really speak. he spoke one word in that interview with the magistrate yesterday. >> no. >> he said no. and the magistrate said let the record reflect that i believe the defendant, the suspect, is saying no. h
that the older brother, tamerlan tsarnaev took a radical turn, when exactly? what about that six-month trip to dagestan and chechnya. i want to bring in pete williams. good morning once again. i want to start with dzhokhar tsarnaev. do we know specifically beyond serious condition how he's doing and how much talking he's doing? >> well, very little talking because of his throat wound. serious but stable condition is the way they describe it. we have been told that they are asking him some questions during brief periods and that he is giving them answers in writing. what he's saying we don't know. we can assume they are asking him about other threats. whether they had other plotters working with them or whether there were other explosives out there. that's the kind of questions they can ask during this initial period before they have to give him a miranda warning. >> which deals with public security threat. do investigators have a good handle, pete, on how big an arsenal they had? >> you know, we have heard conflicting things about this. we know they had a lot of finished bombs because they
know his brother, tamerlan, possibly made a couple of visits there, if that emerges, now that he has had his miranda rights, does the government have powers to go back in and start to interrogate him? >> yes. they have the power to do it. whether it would be a proper under the law, is an open question. they couldn't use any of the material that they illicited from him, but maybe they don't need it. they may also reindict him. >> well, they wouldn't use the inform in the criminal case against him but could use it to get to a wider group. >> oh no question. can you use it against anybody else. you only can't use it against this defendant. and they may be able to obtain such information. and if so, they might reindict him under the terrorist statute. it is a little odd that everybody regards this guy as a terrorist except the united states government. which has indicted him under ordinary murder statute that carries the death penalty. but often we see a second indictment following the first indictment, if more information comes forward. once he get's a lawyer and he says to his lawyer,
of the boston attacks now with more details about tamerlan tsarnaev. >> he was killed in a shootout with police early last friday morning. since then information about his life has been trickling out. abc's brian ross has the latest. >> reporter: federal authorities were searching behind a cambridge drugstore in an area where the brothers' father used to repair cars, looking for possible explosives or where the bombs were made. there is no evidence of a continuing threat. the fbi wants to question tamerlan's wife, seen over the weekend leaving the family apartment. a rhode island native, she converted to islam and changed her name from catherine to karina. because she lived in the same cambridge apartment where authorities believe the two brothers hatched their plot, she could provide clues about whether others were involved. her family issued a statement saying, we know that we never really knew tamerlan tsarnaev. and now there is a possible link to a murder two years ago. local prosecutors said they're investigating whether tamerlan was involved in the brutal murder of three young men, one of
suspect's uncle. he said that tamerlan and dzhokhar brought shame to their community. let's go where ruslan tsarni lives. he called them losers earlier, what is he saying now. >> he used that word yesterday and wouldn't go that far today, but it has equally strong reactions to their actions, anger, tears. i sat down with him earlier today. my first question, what's his reaction to his nephew being caught. take a listen. >> i am relieved. i am relieved that he is alive, first of all, for that there's now chance to find out who was behind it, who were mentors of all of it, and how possibly could he get involved and do this harm to innocent people. and second of all, i stress that there's a chance for jihad and to seek forgiveness. >> don, we should stress the uncle wasn't especially close with the family. he says he had not seen his nephews since around 2006 and had mostly cut ties with the family in 2009. that year he also had a conversation with the older nephew, tamerlan. the uncle said back then he noticed his nephew was becoming more extreme in his religious views and when he trie
tamerlan, the older brother, throws a package, a big package our witnesses say, at police. we now know that that was another pressure cooker bomb exactly same device that was deployed against the boston marathon, the device that we have seen the horrific results of. he throws that at police and apparently it functions, it detonates. why don't we have dozens of injured police officers from that explosion in the middle of that shootout? well, apparently what happened as he tossed it, the lid came off. now, the pressure cooker device is based on explosives building up so much pressure that it explodes the container which is supposed to be airtight but when the lid flipped off what you got was a big boom and a big bang and explosives go to the point of least resistance. so these explosives have somewhere to go, which was out into the air without blowing up the container. but i can recall hearing on the police radio last night them screaming over the radio "loud explosion, big explosion here at the scene." and that was probably that main charge. now, when they found tamerlan's body and they
is detonated. we are also learning about his older brother, tamerlan tsarnaev. in 2009 he was arrested for domestic assault after his girlfriend said he beat her up no last year he openly argued with a preacher at a mosque, telling him holiday celebrations were not allowed by islam. last year he disrupted a sermon by martin luther king calling him a nonbeliever. today marks one week since the attack. from the oval office and around the country a solemn tribute. >> the boston area, most every spot in the city is silent. >> reporter: another step toward normal, boyleston street turned over by federal investigators to the city of boston in the sign of ip ves gags intensity, a tree possibly touched by dzhokhar. taken as evidence. and photos of him, possibly tracking the murder of officer carter. some seriously injured in the hospital, hope. >> nearly all of the patients that have lost legs are already walking the halls with physical therapists. >> reporter: still, grim reminders here just about everywhere. in medford the funeral for krystle campbell. one more step to normal. at 10:00 a.m.
the attack. the brutal killing of one of tamerlan tsarnaev's best friends unsolved since 2011 is now being reviewed with a, quote, wider group of eyes. we'll show you a controlled explosion of a pressure cooker bomb as experts work to learn all they can about these cheap and deadly devices. i'm wolf blitzer in boston and you're in "the situation room." here in boston investigators are learning more about the suspects in last week's bloody massacres. here are the latest developments. a government official tells cnn the surviving suspect told investigators the wars in afghanistan and iraq were motivating factors in the attacks. a new hampshire fireworks store confirms tamerlan tsarnaev bought two reloadable mortar kits with 48 shells but law enforcement officials say it wasn't enough for explosions of the size that occurred in boston. an 8-year-old bombing victim martin richard was buried today after a private funeral mass. his parents issued a statement saying, and i'll read it to you, we laid our son martin to rest and he is now at peace. just minutes ago the sisters of the bombing suspect
government had asked the united states to investigate the deceased brother, tamerlan tsarnaev back in 2001 and the fbi did, in fact, interview the family and him and look into his background. peter doocy is following that story in washington. what did the fbi do back then? >> heather, the fbi says they spoke to suspect number two, tamerlan tsarnaev two years ago at the request of a foreign government who thought he might have possible extremist ties. the fbi combed through databases looking at phone calls, internet activity, travel history, known associates. they also say they did interview tamerlan and some family members, although at this point we don't know which ones and after all that, they found nothing. at the beginning of 2011, he was clean. no evidence of terror activity, foreign or domestic. so case closed. although the fbi did tell this foreign government who reached out that if any further concerns came up, check back in and they would circle back with this amateur boxer in boston. but this foreign government never did check back in. although we have interesting information to
